People do need to spend much of money if they just want to get of a discrete graphic card. Many users would go for Macbook Pro or Surface for this reason. Well, those devices are good, but there is actually a better choice that you could afford for now. Say welcome to the Zenbook Pro, a laptop that comes with a display that easily draw your eyes and NVIDIA GTX 1050 TI that should be both on work and gaming. All of those specifications come into one single place.
ASUS really did the job very well on making the product that suitable for gamer, worker or both of them. There are few bad things about it like the resolution is still HD and not 4K and seeing the fact that the speakers are not that good. But, there are so many good things that cover those problems. For you want to hear from it, you are going to find it soon.
That is what we are going to talk about here. We are going to talk about it further and see how it performs. To make it easier for you to understand, let’s we jump into the article.
The design has few note changes in comparable with ASUS previous series models. In the past, we often get a blue design which is too bright for some users. Now, they make the changes and make it black at all. I really love the improvement as it makes the machine looks premium and solid. The exterior still comes with its iconic circles design with backlight support.
As we open the lid, there is big screen that is surrounded by quite thin bezel. Then, the island type of keyboard is combined with the speakers that placed on the both side of them. Everything is well integrated and there is nothing bad to say from it.
Move to the connectivity, first I was worried this point is going to be a big issues since the dimension and thickness is already so slim. Surprisingly, they manage to put all of standard USB ports and modern ports at the same time. On the left side, there are HDMI and Thunderbolt 3 ports and while on the other side there are double USB 3.0 ports, headphone jack, and micro SD slot.back to menu ↑
The display is probably the biggest selling point here although is not appeared to be the brightness. The images qualities are so vivid and crisp. The detail is everywhere and watching The Star Wars trailer results a nice and enjoyable experience. I was easily got into with it for many hours on watching my favorite movie. What they called as NanoEdge display is showed here with the quality is all over the place.
The screen was able to produce 120 percent of SRGB color and considered as better than Lenovo Yoga 720 that only features a 110 percent of gamut color. My only complaint is only on the brightness which seems quite dim, but not that bad. I guess I just get used with the Macbook Pro brightness that totally bright.

Performance And Little Gaming Test
The laptop is seriously has some powers to show. The Intel I7 7700HQ and NVIDIA GTX 1050 TI are beast in term of performance and power consumption. It easily handles my multiple on Chrome although I stream a 1080p video at the one of the tabs. It runs perfectly without any lag or slowdown. The same thing goes when I opened the Photoshop where the loading time is fast thanks to the SSD.
I have tried to do of few gaming test and it’s pretty on playing games with medium or low setting. The high setting is possible, but only in few games like CS GO or Rocket League. On the high demanding AAA game like Rise of the Tomb Rider, the FPS reached to the 50 FPS with few drops into the 48-45 FPS. The game is playable from the beginning until the end. Just do not try it over VR because that is not possible at all.back to menu ↑
